THE RUINS director Carter Smith has been hard at work behind a new film titled JAMIE MARKS IS DEAD which is an adaptation of the novel One for Sorrow by Christopher Barzak. What's crazy is that this is Smith's first feature film since 2008's tension fueled horror flick THE RUINS and he managed to keep it way under the radar because JAMIE MARKS IS DEAD is already in post-production! I thought Smith did a hell of a job bringing the adaptation of Scott Smith's novel to the big screen with THE RUINS so I can't wait to see what he does with JAMIE MARKS IS DEAD.
Adam McCormick had just turned fifteen when the body was found in the woods. It is the beginning of an autumn that will change his life forever. Jamie Marks was a boy a lot like Adam, a boy no one paid much attention to—a boy almost no one would truly miss. And for the first time, Adam feels he has a purpose. Now, more than ever, Jamie needs a friend. But the longer Adam holds on to Jamie’s ghost, the longer he keeps his friend tethered to a world where he no longer belongs…and the weaker Adam’s own ties to the living become. Now, to find his way back, Adam must learn for himself what it truly means to be alive.
Starring is Noah Silver who plays Jamie Marks and he will be joined by Liv Tyler (pictured) and Judy Greer. We'll keep you folks posted on this one as more details come in!
